There are thought to be around 6,000 Young Carers in Lincolnshire. Of these, around 2,000 are known to Lincolnshire County Council who will be receiving contact from us. This leaves a large number of young people who may not be receiving the support they need. We are also mindful that some children may be providing care and support for the first time because of Covid-19.
Lincolnshire Young Carers has produced the attached postcard with information about how to contact them to find out about accessing available support. If this isn’t relevant to you but to someone you know please pass the link on.
